Haven't stayed in a Best Western in many years, but this was convenient for my situation. Room was spacious enough and the bed comfortable. However, it was hotter than usual that week and the a/c unit didn't comfortably cool the room--kept going on and off, and it was too cold when on then too warm when off. Aggravating the problem was that the only blanket was a (feather?) quilt--too hot when it was on you, too cold without.
I appreciated having the fridge in the room to keep milk and snacks--although it was set too cold and the milk froze. Free wi-fi I guess is pretty standard, but I thought they offered more TV stations than most hotels. Others complained about the quality of the food for the free breakfast buffet, but I thought it was just fine given the situation; certainly convenient, The frittata was good, and on Sunday they had real bacon which was better than the microwave sausage on the other days. The usual array of cereals, muffins, bagels and pastries. Most important was that the coffee was good and they had a great cappuccino machine that had a whole host of yummy choices. You could eat inside or out in the courtyard which was lovely.
Price-wise it varied from $110 TO $150 (with AAA discount), the latter price for Saturday night seemed a little pricey for a Best Western--but the whole Santa Barbara area is expensive (and this is about 8 miles out). Did not get to use pool and jacuzzi but looked nice. 4 out of 5 rating seemed a little too high, I would give more like 3.5.
